Fairbanks finished recording their new demo May 2002. Tracks are still being mixed and mastered, but for a first listen to the rough mix, check out 'The Fun in Dysfunctional' and 'The Longest Walk' for a taste of what is to come for Fairbanks.
Fairbanks is a Hard Rock band based in Raleigh, North Carolina. Combining a powerful mix of grunge, emo, and hardcore, Fairbanks is serving up a unique sound that is both heavy and beautiful; with positive lyrics that are sharp and incisive. Welcome to the grungecore.
The band includes Britt on guitar and vocals, Matt on bass and vocals, and Josh on drums. We all met in high school, then went on to the same college, NC State University, which we still attend. In the summer of 1999 we discovered that we all had a love for music and a desire to create something new and powerful in the music scene. We have been rockin hard ever since.
Though we love to play loud and jump around on stage, we know it would be worth nothing if we had no purpose, no goal, no reason for playing. The words we sing are meaningless if they have no point. Since I very recently endured the trials and tests of teenage-hood, I know there are many kids (as well as many people in general) searching for answers, true joy, and a reason to live. Our songs tell stories that point to the ultimate answer, God. Our music is from the heart and very true to us.
We put 100 % of ourselves into every song and every show. We tour consistently in the Southeast during school, and nationally during the summer. So when we get to your city, come on out to the grungecore show, but don't forget your earplugs! We are here to rock you.
